The CUE Center for Missing Persons started in 1994 and is dedicated to supporting family members whose loved ones are missing, according to its Web site.
Monica Caison, who founded the nonprofit, grew up in St. Petersburg, Fla., where she knew a family whose loved one mysteriously disappeared only to be found dead decades later.
Caison says that experience, as well as others, instilled her with a desire to help families who have missing relatives and led her to form the nonprofit, according to the CUE Center’s Web site.
CUE, which stands for Community United Effort, is funded by donations and staffed by volunteers.
CUE volunteers search for missing people, support families whose relatives have gone missing, and work with the media and law enforcement to focus attention on unsolved cases.
According to its Web site, the Cue Center has helped 8,700 families.
Caison said the most important aspect of working a missing person case is listening to the families who know the habits of their loved one and who also know when they’re relative has been gone to long.
